This entire 🧵Women for centuries, spinning/knitting/sewing for hours, so practiced at what they do they can free up their minds to think and talk amongst themselves. HOW COULD IT NOT GET POLITICAL? https://twitter.com/WoollyWormhead/status/1143042515957891072

Knitty was launched in 2002 and this is not surprising if you are familiar with it. Thanks Amy and everyone else there for continuing to help set the bar for the best of what the online textile art community can offer. https://twitter.com/knittymag/status/1143517499696263173

I just responded to someone claiming to be representing a large group of conservative knitters and crocheters, asking if Knitty supports @ravelry’s decison. The answer is still yes. Knitty is about inclusion, and IMO, this policy is about making inclusiveness SAFE.

For all the "you can't prove Trump is a white supremacist" types, please read this well-researched thread and all its links. The accusation isn't being made for no reason https://twitter.com/JuliusGoat/status/1054669092764966912

仁 (ren), the Confucian precept often translated as benevolence or humaneness, exemplified as the human adult instinct to protect children.

The Analects also states that if the ruler lacks ren, it will be difficult for his subjects to behave humanely.

More of 'ren', now. https://twitter.com/unkaido_kaisho/status/1143444125653454848

💯 I’m on Ravelry often and the (few) times I’ve seen Trump invoked was when people were clearly trying to get a rise out of others. Otherwise a very diverse userbase co-exists peacefully. The policy was written carefully to protect political diversity while banning hate speech. https://twitter.com/louisetilbrook1/status/1143559181561151490

This is a good read about textiles (incl knitting & spinning), politics and feminism. Spans 20000 years so .. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Womens-Work-First-Years-Society/dp/0393313484

This is amazing. I've been sharing this with lots of my friends who have children and former students. Saddened, but not surprised, to know that many Taiwanese are unaware of the vast cooperation there is between NASA and Taiwanese scientists regarding space science. https://twitter.com/emilyywu/status/1143393067145129984

Great policy from Ravelry, banning Trump support. Well thought through, described & implemented, anticipating possible abuses, protecting Republicans & conservatives from harassment. This is how to do rules and community guideline design. Bravo!

Textile arts = the group chat of the pre-digital era.
“That varlet Ebenezer sent me a painting of his member again.”
“Weave him a shroud.”

This is seriously a great book. I discovered it when I was 11 and bought my own copy a few years later. I’ve had it for almost 20 years and always re-read it before bed in college. It’s been with me in California, New York and now Taipei (I also have it on Kindle and Audible).

One of my favorite things about knitting is that with a little practice and the right pattern, you don’t have to watch your hands. You can watch other things, like racists pouting because someone called them racist.

also really loving all the right-wingers crawing out of the woodwork to get SUPER ANGRY about not being able to share their hateful views on a knitting website that they’d literally never heard of before today.

Thank you @ravelry for saying something that many people of color have been longing to hear their online communities say without hesitation or prevarication.
